Three words to describe your style? Sleek, Classy, Fun

Your personality type is? I’m an influencer with a bit of dominance

Your greatest skill is? Gab – I think I have the ability to articulate things well, and if I need to sell salt to a slug I can.

What's your hidden talent? Carpentry – I like to get my hands dirty ever so often.

Who is the last person you texted?  Natalya

The person you admire most? Tough one, my grandmother for her strength, resilience and ability to make a lot from a little.

If you could speak any foreign language fluently enough to write poetry in, which language would it be? French

If you could give advice to a younger version of yourself, what would it be? Focus is very important and definitely something that if developed at a young age can help you to succeed, and at an accelerated rate.

Your favorite artwork?  Can’t say I’m into visual art.

What’s your favorite app – facebook, instagram, twitter, snapchat or periscope? Instagram for sure. I scroll through it everyday and now there’s instagram stories so it’s the best combo we have right now.

Your greatest success?  I have been able to find peace and happiness in my daily life. I enjoy work, I enjoy helping people and this is often done through organisations which I am a part of and I generally enjoy the friendships I have made along life’s journey.

What has been your biggest knockback? I place equal weighting on every setback I’ve had in my life. I learn and grow from every single challenge and experience that I have. Thus I can’t identify my biggest knockback but I will say that every failure has helped me onto the next step of the journey by making me stronger.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Heading marketing, external affairs or communications somewhere, steering my company into the future or working with a charity to do something globally impactful.

What’s your favorite curse word? I don’t have a favourite, I don’t like to use any of them, but don’t test me

The most valuable lesson you’ve learned? I’ve learned to take charge of self. While we live in a world with many other people and we have friends who support us along the way, kin who are there for us when we need them, you are the only person that can get you where you need to go in this world.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? I think I’d want to ability to grant wishes.
